Clearly the huddle must still be buzzing from yesterday.

What is the obsession with trades? Trading alone does not win the draft you know.

I would perfer Jamar Taylor (Rd 2), and Da'Rick Rodgers (Rd 4) and that would be solid. We need OL help in a bad way too... that 161 times Cam has been hit or Sacked (most in NFL) worries me, and should also worry the coaching staff.

If Hunter or Allen is there at #44, you ignore the phone like he did with our first pick. If those two are gone I'd entertain trades of 9 or fewer picks down. There's a solid 6 or 7 more players I'd put at about equal desirability for us after Hunter and Allen. Cyprien, Taylor, Rambo, Patton, Woods, Warford to name a few. One of them would likely be still available at 53 or sooner.

I dont' get the infatuation with trading down. You rarely get a better player. Stick at 44 and get your self a great player, end of story.

It's going to be offensive line. Count on it. Unless Cyprien falls. The only position of need that Carolina didn't supplement in FA was OL. I hope they get a tackle that could eventually replace Gross.

I think it is more so trying to get the third back, plus to accumulate some picks since we need depth as well as quality. If an offer comes through that is decent, I think they should at least entertain the idea.

Yeah but the goal is to get 2 starters, the farther we fall back, the less of a chance that is to happen.

Judging from what Gettleman said about trading down in last night's press conference, I'd be very surprised if we did.


our GM keeps stating "I'd rather have a dollar than 3 dimes"


Gettleman seems really averse to trading down. Hard to imagine he'd do it unless somebody brings him a mind-blowing offer.

Just can't see it happening.

We will not trade our pick because.............

another "Hogmolly" will be staring us in the kisser.@ 44

and we won't pass it up.


ps.......our GM keeps stating "I'd rather have a dollar than 3 dimes"


This. Gettleman is not a fan of trading down. Don't understand why people keep thinking he is.

Trading down in the 2nd makes zero sense.

Trade down is possible, NE might want to move up for a WR, they now have two 2's and two 3's I believe. And Panthers would love to a get a third rounder. In the end it just depends who is left on the board

If Cyprien is gone, do it!
But who's going to trade up? We're not in a good position for a QB needy team to jump up to.

Exactly - Newton really isnt superman. The kid needs help.
